Tomorrow morning sees a team of seven friends from iCycle start their assault on the Raid Pyreneen. An assault that will be completed in less than 100 hours (if all goes to plan), having comprised 720km and 14,600m of climbing.
It’s a challenge that was instituted by the Cyclo-club Bearnaise and is a popular challenge for insane cyclists…
This madness is what my training this year has all been aimed at. The Etape last month was a dress-rehearsal.
Tomorrow’s blog post will, no doubt, have more information about the day’s cycling – but today I wanted to use the opportunity to bang a drum. That drum is one which has already made a difference to the world and presents an opportunity to make an even more profound one.
